Religious Instruction -
Anoient Soripture

Professors: R. L. Anderson, Bankhead, Clark, Done, Ludlow, Nibley, Patch

(Chairman, 122 JSB), Rasmussen, Skousen, Sperry (emeritus).
Associate Professors: Cheesman, Pearson, H. D. Peterson, Ricks.
Assistant Professors: Bentley, Brown, Harris, Meservy, Nyman, Parsons, Taylor.

This department, along with its companion department of Church History and
Doctrine, provides a basic service for all students of the University. It is the
intent and purpose of the CJollege of Religious Instruction to provide all students
the opportunity to grow and mature in their religious concepts and appreci-
ations as they grow and develop in their academic disciplines at the University.
After completion of the primary Book of Mormon courses, students should
choose additional courses that best suit their needs and interests.

Since undergraduate majors in religion are not offered, there are no areas
of specialization. However, graduate work designed primarily to serve the needs
of teachers in the LDS seminary and institute systems is available. It is an-
ticipated that graduate courses in this department will be taken by some stu-
dents doing graduate work in other departments and in the new interdepart-
mental Institute of Ancient Studies. Any student anticipating working in either
of these graduate programs would do well to choose his undergraduate religion
courses in such a way as to lay a background for the graduate work he in-
tends to do.
